Samar Audio MF65Regular price £1,604.17
With unparalleled sound, attention to detail, and craftsmanship, the MF65 is an instant classic, combining State of the Art technology with a completely original and innovative design, the MF65 sets a new standard for High End ribbon microphones.
We have created a microphone with the bottom end response ruler flat down to 20 Hz (-0.43 dB) and the most extended high frequency response ever seen in figure eight ribbon, exceeding well beyond 25 kHz. For an unprecedented top end and balanced frequency response, the company’s owner and chief engineer, Dr. Mark Fouxman, has created one of the most advanced motors with the shortest front-to-back path ever seen in a ribbon microphone. For design efficiency the motor is an extension of the main body, integrating the two into one cohesive structure
For such a unique approach, only precision machining can achieve the tight tolerances required for the MF65's innovative design. All the parts are fabricated in house using State of the Art CNC machines. The body, top and bottom caps fit seamlessly for a streamlined appearance. The extreme attention to detail is apparent from the first glance.
The MF65 includes a mechanism for fine ribbon adjustment with consistency, offering the highest possible performance. The top quality toroidal transformers were designed and tuned specifically for this particular model and are made in-house.
The MF65 is a precision instrument of uncompromised craftsmanship with the utmost attention paid to every detail both sonic and cosmetic. Its very tight manufacturing tolerances ensure the highest level of performance and uniformity from unit to unit. The MF65 tonal balance combines vintage vibe with modern sound, creating a unique recording tool. It excels on piano, brass instruments, drum overheads, acoustic and electric guitars, choir, violin, voice, and as a room microphone, among other applications.
It is sold with lifetime parts-2-year ribbon replacement warranty.
